We're just back from an amazing week in Achill at Kathryn's fantastic coastal home. Kathryn was very responsive and gave excellent directions and instructions for everything. The house was just perfect for us and our children, with comfortable, big bedrooms and plenty of living room space for everyone. The bigger children were chuffed with their upstairs bedroom and sitting/play area and there are plenty of toys and dvds for rainy days and evenings, an unexpected surprise for our gang. We were blessed with fantastic weather for the whole week had great fun playing ball and frisbee in the big enclosed garden when we weren't at Keel and Keem Beaches. The locals and neighbours are very friendly and helpful (great tourist office at Achill Sound and our neighbour gave the children a big bag of treats, so kind!) We cycled the Mulranny - Newport leg of the Greenway which I highly recommend, it's an amazing way to see this beautiful corner of Ireland and is very doable - even with 5 kiddos.
Every comfort is available in Kathryn's bright and tasteful home which is extremely well equipped. Space was at a premium in our car so i hadn't packed luxuries like a hairdryer but there was not one, but two available to use. The house is really well located and a perfect base to explore Achill. We've been on many self catering holidays over the years, home and abroad with and without kids and this was by far our best Irish rental. I'd have no hesitation about recommending Kathryn's house, Airbnb and Achill, all of whom made our staycation a very memorable and enjoyable one.
Beautiful house, fantastic location and Kathryn was such a responsive and welcoming host
Our stay on Achill was exactly what we were hoping for. The house is as good as it looks in the photos, spacious, airy, beautifully appointed and with a lovely view - we thoroughly enjoyed being able to come back after a days walking around the island and relax in the space. Kathryn was very friendly and helpful, quick to respond to any questions we had. We loved the quiet and beauty of Achill itself and hope to come back and stay here again
This house was fantastic! It's in a great location for walking. We had 3 adults and 2 children and we were all very comfortable. The house had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. Kathryn was very responsive.
Let's put the summary first:
I can really recommend that house !!
It is very spacious, some guests may have more room than they have at home.
It has some fancy "ingredients": two living rooms, both with full TV and audio Equipment.
In the kithen a high-tech stove with two ovens (!), a fridge with separate freezer, and also a dishwasher. You really don't miss a thing.
Everything is very clean.
Quite a big garden. If you close the gate, then it is safe for the kids. On the other hand, if you want some Company, then just leave the gate open: then you may get a visit from the sheep from across the street ! They must like the lawn very much. :-)
Obviously Kathryn knows how to pull the right strings: during our stay we only had sunshine and not a single drop of rain !!
Kathryn, we are really grateful, it was great. We are already thinking about a come-back. Thank you !!
Kathryn was a fantastic host, she always replied very quickly to my emails and gave us all the information we needed for our stay.
The house is lovely, very modern and clean. The beds were all very comfortable. It is well situated from the lovely beaches, especially Keem beach which is the nicest I have seen in Ireland. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed to cook our own meals.
The view of the sea from the house is lovely. The house is all enclosed which was perfect as we had our dogs with us. All in all, we had a fantastic stay here and would recommend the house for anyone looking to stay in Achill.
Kathryn was very prompt in replying to any query that I had when making this booking. She was very accommodating. When we got to the house Kathryn checked in to make sure that all was well and reassured if there was any issues not to hesitate in contacting her.
The house its self was all we expected and more, it was very well equipped. We had our breakfasts and made dinner one night at the house and there was every thing we needed there. The bedrooms were very comfortable.
The house was ideally located for us. It was a 20 min walk to keel village where we had dinner on the Saturday night, and a 10 min drive from Keem beach which was beautiful.
The house is up a little from the road so it was possible to watch the traffic go by however it was far back enough for privacy. On occasion some neighbours passed and they were very pleasant.
